Beowulf, Footwear, and Footnotes

LLCoolCarl has some (a)musings on the new Beowulf film that are not to be missed.* Once can measure the quality of a post over at Got Medieval by the number of footnotes; in this case, LLCoolCarl has six, making it one of the greatest posts in the history of the galaxy.**

*Note for my comp students: See? I used negative and passive voice together, quite intentionally. If you know what you're doing, it can work. If you don't, it just stinks.
**Now he's got me doing it ... that's two gratuitous footnotes in a post that doesn't require any.

  1. Just caught a trailer for the flick. When I ask for a hero, I want a hero, not a blowhard with a plastic chest. Frankly, the D&D movie had better writing.
